Watch this interactive documentary and learn how the Internet is judging us

Janet Vertesi, Kate Crawford

D&S affiliate Kate Crawford and advisor Janet Vertesi were interviewed in this Fusion piece exploring privacy.

“Big data is getting creepy and it’s invading people’s lives more and more. There’s been this tremendous rise of an invisible layer of the Internet that involves bots, beacons and cookies that build a profile of who we are online,” [Vertesi] said at the time. “People have reasons for privacy that are not terrible ones. They just don’t want everything about them captured by a company and kept.”
